In this paper, taking the approach that nurses working long hours can lead to patient dissatisfaction and nurse burnout is the approach I’m thinking. Then applying evidence base practice to the issue.
Length of submission: 2–4-page scholarly paper, this does not include the APA-formatted title page and reference list. Number of references: Cite 3–5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your findings and considerations. Resources should be no more than five years old. APA formatting: References and citations are formatted according to current APA style.
Develop a 2-4-page scholarly paper in which you describe a quality or safety issue, or a chosen diagnosis, and then
identify and analyze credible evidence that could be used as the basis for applying EBP to the issue.
The goal of using evidence-based research findings is to enhance safety and quality of patient care and ensure
optimal outcomes are achieved. It is not uncommon to hear a nurse say, “why change it as we’ve always done it this
way.” However, this is no longer acceptable in today’s practice environment. The profession of nursing has evolved,
and the expectation is that the professional nurse has a scientific foundation to support the care that is provided. As
the profession of nursing continues to evolve and engage in health care transformation, baccalaureate-prepared
nurses are expanding taking on leadership roles that include incorporating EBPs. To be able to do this, the nurse
needs to understand the criteria and makes a resource credible, as this is crucial when deciding if the research is
valid and reliable for implementation into health care settings.
It would be an excellent choice to complete the Vila Health Determining the Credibility of Evidence activity prior to
developing the report. The activity is a media simulation that offers an opportunity to review a scenario and work on
determining the credibility of presented evidence. These skills will be necessary to complete Assessment 2
successfully. This media simulation is one potential source of context on which to base your assessment submission.
This will take just a few minutes of your time and is not graded.
